Question about Smith Corona Wordsmith 200 Typewriter

1 Answer

MY WORDSMITH 250 PRINTS II INSTEAD OF LETTERS WHAT CODES DO I NEED TO USE TO CLEAR THIS I have a Smith Corona SL 105 electric typewriter. When I was changing the ribbon the printwheel slipped out of place and every attemp to replace it has failed. It, too, typed straight lines and then quit doing anything except going like a jackhammer when I turn on the machine. Is the printwheel defective? I can't see how to put it back--just had to feel for its position. Myra Elliott, elliott673@bellsouth.net

You may have damaged the printwheel when replacing the ribbon film.

Try first removing the ribbon film cartridge, re-fitting the print wheel and cartridge.

If that does not work the print wheel can be damaged, replace it. If ribbon film had also been damaged, you get it here : SMITH CORONA SMC22200 22200 Typewriter Ribbon, Film

You can get replacements printwheels here:

You have a key board problem. It may just need disassembly and cleaning but more likely it needs a new contact velum.

The print head might have accummulated a lot of paper bits you need to clear them with a needle or just submerge the tip in petrol or ether. Caution do not submerge if its made of plastic.

the markes you see is the print hammer hitting the ribbon & paper. remove the ribbon & print wheel. look close at the print wheel when out of the machine if there are any spaces betwen the spokes a letter has broken off and you need a new print wheel, If just bent slowly strten them out. reinstall wheel & ribbon try it.
